MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Phoenix Film Foundation is a 501c3 Non-profit Organization whose mission is to support and develop the artistic appreciation, educational opportunities and growth of independent film within and outside of Arizona. The Foundation’s primary functions through its programs are to promote the exhibition of independent films and conduct educational programs that teach the art of independent filmmaking.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
We're proud to announce the 14th Annual Phoenix Film Festival to be held April 3 to 10, 2014. The Festival is planning for another big year and we want you to be a part of this great filmmaker event.

The Phoenix Film Festival has been named one of The 25 Coolest Film Festivals by MovieMaker Magazine and has been called the most filmmaker-friendly festival out there. The Phoenix Film Festival is a program of the 501c(3) non-profit Phoenix Film Foundation, started in 2000 by independent filmmakers as an opportunity to showcase independent filmmaking and it has quickly become Arizona's Largest Film Festival.

The Phoenix Film Festival annually screens over 150 films, holds amazing parties and provided filmmaking seminars to capacity audiences. Over 23,000 attendees enjoy the 8 day festival.
The Festival takes place all in one convenient location and is held on 7 screens at the state of the art Harkins Scottsdale/101. All parties and workshops are held in the Party Pavilion just outside the theatre. Which means everything you need is right on site.

The 2013 Phoenix Film Festival will take place April 3 to April 10 in the beautiful Valley of the Sun. The program will be held over eight days, including the United States best competition for feature-length premiere independent films, several film premieres and screenings outside of competition from major U.S. Studios and filmmakers in our Showcase Program, a Foreign Film Showcase of feature and short-length films, many Short Film Programs including Grade School/ High School, College, Animated, Documentary and Arizona Filmmakers. There are a number of free seminars on all types of filmmaking related topics, Celebrity tributes and conversations, and awesome parties that bring the festival community together.

Don't just take it from us, here are just a few comments we received from our 2013 filmmakers......

"A number of film festivals get a few things right. Phoenix has the distinction of getting everything right. From our sold out screenings to the nightly parties, I've never experienced as warm a reception as I received from the PFF team and the festival's audiences. We look forward to returning again and again.” – Zak Forsman, Director of “Down and Dangerous”

"We had a perfect experience at Phoenix Film Festival! It's one of the best run festivals I've been to anywhere in the world--extremely professional but still full of personal touches and the friendliest team you could ever hope to meet. They truly care about the films and the filmmakers, and the audiences actually stay to discuss the film afterward--not only in the theater, but also at the nightly parties... and after-parties.“ Chris Eska – Director, The Retrieval

“The Phoenix Film Festival is one of my favorite festivals; great films, tons of networking opportunities, fabulous parties and a professional yet comfortable atmosphere. It's a real community gathering and it's one of the most warm and welcoming festivals I've been to. It's apparent how much the festival cares about story and about the filmmakers. It's staffed so well and the venues are amazing -- I hope to be back next year with another film!!”– Elise Salomon, Director of “Los Wild Ones”

“PFF is one of the best run, friendliest, and most dynamic festivals I have had the privilege to screen at. From the moment I stepped off the plane I knew I was in excellent hands. Their incredible team do an amazing job. I would love to come back again, and will tell every filmmaker I know that they need to go to Phoenix Film Fest” – Jason Chaet, Director of “Putzel”

We hope to see your film at the 2014 Phoenix Film Festival!
